Wild Abandon Salad Greens, part 2

Five-finger Ivy
I keep hearing folks claim that five-finger ivy isn’t edible, but we continue to eat it and enjoy it. Perhaps there are various varities about? Ours tastes wonderfully lemony.

All of the mallows, including Rose of Sharon, are edible. So is every hibiscus. Time to add some soothing leaves to the salad.

Wild Mustard
Pepper grasses are setting seeds. They are part of the wild mustard family, which contains only edible species. Some are too bitter to eat, and some are too sharp for some folks, but they are all edible, so find some wild mustards around you and have a taste test. Who knows what amazing salad additions you will discover.
